Call for Artists
Yet & Still and the Center for the Study of the American South are excited to invite student artists to participate in the second running of #BlackOutLoudUNC, a collaborative art exhibition that explores representations of Blackness within the UNC Chapel Hill community!
This project intends to highlight the beauty and heterogeneity of Blackness in the context of a historically white, public university in the American South. Artistic works exploring themes of belonging, community, conflict, contested citizenship, education, faith, freedom dreams, identity, love, mental health, resilience, resistance, sexuality, and many others will be considered. Works proposed for inclusion in this temporary installation may use a range of approaches including visual art, performance art, written pieces, or some combination.
A distinguishing feature of this project is the opportunity for collaboration with other student artists. Accordingly, we hope that bonds developed during the brief project lead to further collaboration and artistic expression. In addition to experienced student artists, first-timers, novices, and those who are reluctant to self-identify as artists are encouraged to submit proposals.
